The NHL could be in store for an eventful night. There could be an elimination in Nashville tonight along with an unexpected result in Dallas that has pundits harkening back to the days of the 2020 bubble. 

There are four Game 4’s tonight before the scene shifts tomorrow to the homes of the higher seeds. Let’s look at your NHL betting options.

Calgary Standing At The Crossroads

Give Dallas a ton of credit here. The Stars were picked by no one to win against the Calgary Flames. By now, the ESPN.com tweet of all their NHL experts has made the rounds many, many times. 

It has been a brutal series for Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk obviously. When a coach says “their player has to bury their chances”, one has to wonder. Calgary is only down two games to one in this series and won’t be eliminated if it loses tonight. 

Thankfully, the pace did pick up some in Game 3 but again, Jake Oettinger came up bigger and bigger as the game went on. Sometimes numbers get thrown out the window come playoff time. Oettinger had a worse save percentage at home this season. One would not know it right now. He is thwarting Calgary at every turn. 

There are some nice, plus-like numbers to consider from the Calgary-Dallas tilt. For one, consider the following if a Canadian sports bettor wants to side with Calgary. 

  • Johnny Gaudreau and Jason Robertson both score: 9.00
  • Calgary 60-minute win: 1.88
  • Over 5.5 goals: 2.05
  • Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk over 2.5 shots: 1.62

Again, the key with wagering and picks in Canada is to remember this. Be sensible. Look at the numbers from as objective of a point of view as possible.

The Toronto and Tampa Bay Battle Picks Up Tomorrow

Toronto and Edmonton have pivotal Game 5’s at home on Tuesday night. Both series are tied at 2 and they will both be favoured. Ontario sports betting players will note that Toronto is currently a 1.75 to 1.80 early nod to win Game 5 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. 

To be fair, Toronto and Tampa Bay have both not been able to sustain their momentum from game to game. That has almost been the expected from the start of this series. 

Current numbers have Toronto at an attractive puckline (3.00). Is this the game Steven Stamkos wakes up? The Ontario native like Toronto’s John Tavares has not had the best of series so far. All it takes is a moment though.

Here are some early bets to consider:

  • Over 6.5 goals: 2.05
  • Toronto Series Odds: 1.83

If Toronto wins Game 5 and then loses Game 6, all bets may be off. Keep that in mind. The game predictors list a series end at 1.91 for both six and seven games. 

Yes, some may be wondering about Edmonton. The idea is to wait for some player and team prop bets for Tuesday.

  • New York Rangers in 60 moneyline (must-win game): 2.26

  • Alexander Ovechkin shot prop Over 4.5 shots: check this one, could change.
